Saturday Morning

Finn's Saturday was a little bit like a roller coaster - up and down.  After a tough night of sleep, I decided we were going to go for a little walk.  I went to a state park which allows dogs - there aren't too many around here.  They have some great hiking trails!

We arrived early - hey, I'm no fool, it's still July and hot here.  But we no sooner started out on our walk, when Finn kept looking behind us.  She turned her head around maybe three times, and then just decided to turn back and head to the car.  Who am I to argue?  So, after a quick tick check, we get back in and go.

I didn't want it to be just a boring old day, so I had an idea!

Soon, Finn took notice.

And then the whining to play began!  I let the pool fill up a bit, and then it was playtime!  You've seen Finn in our pool before, so I'll spare the photo details.  Except for this one.   When she's splashing in the water, she tries to catch it with her mouth - I think I was able to capture it here.

Now, I'm hoping a certain someone doesn't read this blog too soon.  I had some trouble emptying the pool, and I flooded the woodchips.  Uh oh.  Can you tell?  I think I am going to head back out there and do some fixing.  Finn, don't tell Daddy.

Hope you all are still keeping cool!


  1. Hey Finn, you got it now. WATER, cool sweet WATER.

    My Vickie wanted to ask you if she could pick a different picture of you for the contest.

    If you get a minute, will you email her and she will tell you which one form your site she would like to do.

    Hope you are still keeping cool


  2. Woof! Woof! FINN. What a great Saturday you had. I like your pool. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. We bought a similar kiddy pool for Whisky too! It's more for therapy (to help her strenghten her back legs) and since she's a small dog with short legs, the pool is deep enough for her to "swim" (with us supporting her). :) She doesn't like it very much though.

    I hope you are able to salvage the woodchips before the certain someone notices! Heehee.

    And Finn honey, you look like you're having a ball snapping at the water! BOL!

  4. Hi Finn. What a fun Saturday playing in your pool!
